Nice article written by Hilts up on the front page. My fault it's so late :(

Still makes me want to ride more than the local wobbly wheelers over 65s and ladies club runs next year.

Amazing event, awesome ride by James and a top write up.

Having ridden those climbs last year (obviously not in one day!) I'm in complete awe of the achievement, without even taking into account the family situation. Forget l'etape, the Marmotte is the daddy.

By the way,for the previous poster l'eroica is http://www.eroica-ciclismo.it/english/home.asp
